Praise to the Amazon queens, a new trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 dropped over the weekend. Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins reteams with Gal Gadot and Chris Pine for a fresh adventure set in the “Greed is Good” era of shoulder pads, shopping malls, and fanny packs. If that weren’t enough, for this hotly anticipated sequel, Jenkins and star/producer Gadot roped in Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal for a tale of jealousy, desire, and questionable hairdos.
With a trailer this tantalizing, Twitter exploded.

Fans were less outright enthused by Pedro Pascal’s Wonder Woman 1984 transformation.
i’ve been going all day seeing this picture on my tl not realizing this is pedro pascal what the actual fuck did they do to him 😭 pic.twitter.com/ReZhomXEIL— poe’s two braincells (@srgntbuck) December 8, 2019

All of these #WW84 character posters absolutely kill, but Pedro Pascal's Maxwell Lord is impossibly perfect. Not only does this feel like the Max of the Giffen/DeMatteis/Maguire era, I feel like there's a hint of Gene Hackman's Lex Luthor here. pic.twitter.com/0jGK0MbjDO— Mike Cecchini (@wayoutstuff) December 8, 2019
Pedro Pascal - the master of making successful franchises 10x more better. pic.twitter.com/qilf51HjDO— John | Lover of Movies (@johne1998) December 8, 2019
Overall though, the response was ecstatic.
